The folds of Array's roof are like a lock to T5's key, found on the roof as well.

 

Did a search on the architects and found that it was Mirvac Design headed by Design Director Julian Venning.

 

Is architecture for Mirvac now handled in-house?

 

Wood Marsh were T5's architects and I can't help but think that they must be involved with Array as well.

I think you could certainly mount an argument that both Yarra Point (to an extent) and Array (much more-so)have taken design cues from T5.

I see T5 as quite a masculine tower with Array as its female counterpart, much as you have described Array's roof to be like a lock to T5's key, almost like the inverse.

My understanding is that Wood Marsh were not involved in the design of Array, despite winning the design comp about a decade ago to design both T5 & T6. While I quite like Array I think it lacks some of the design finesse and execution that Wood Marsh would have brought, with some elements that look a little clumsy and unnecessary.

I would have liked the podium to tie in a bit better with T5's as per Wood Marsh's original scheme. Currently Array's podium has a Beacon Cove look about it, IMO.

It will be good to see this gap in the Yarra Edge dentures filled. The line up will start to look very impressive when this one has risen a bit more.

onwards and upwards

Homes from $1.7m. They must be good. Hope they've read the market correctly in Docklands.

Yay. Now that the podium has been cleared it's time for the actual tower to start rising.

Development & Planning

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 12:00
The swirl of development activity in Footscray has found another gear as new projects are submitted for approval, or are on the verge of beginning construction. Two separate planning applications have been advertised by Maribyrnong City Council; their subsequent addition to the Urban Melbourne Project Database has seen the overall number of apartment developments within Footscray in development swell to 40.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

When a site spans 19,280 square metres, it becomes a 'district'. That's the case according to the development team behind the Jam Factory's pending overhaul. Reporting on the project to date has focused on the close to 60,000 square metres of new commercial space that is earmarked for the site, but more importantly from a layperson's perspective is the extensive new public realm that is planned as part of the development.

Sustainability & Environment

Cbus Property's office development for Medibank at 720 Bourke Street in Docklands recently became the first Australian existing property to receive a WELL Certification, Gold Shell and Core rating. The WELL rating goes beyond sustainable building features with a greater focus on the health and well-being of a building's occupants.
